T2’s Earl Grey has to be the boldest Earl Grey I’ve tried. It’s very malty, and the bergamot flavour is very potent. The latter part is good because I love bergamot! Earl Grey is normally my afternoon tea (cos the delicate and elegant bouquet of bergamot always remind me of Victorian ladies!), but T2’s is too heady for peaceful, relaxing tea time. Will make a good breakfast tea though!

I also find this way too overloaded – like you earl grey is an afternoon tea for me and for the exact same reason! And this never works as an afternoon tea for me so it’s a bit of a let down.

Devilish

Haha it’s funny to know that you think earl grey is an afternoon tea for the same reason!!! What would be your choice of afternoon tea from T2? :) I don’t have much experience with T2’s range but I think Arctic Fire is pretty nice.

I know it’s nice to share my tea-taste with someone I’m pretty out of sync with everyone I know every time I offer tea they all reach for something else.

Afternoon tea? Without even blinking I have to say White Rose – accompanied by cucumber sandwiches and macaroons hee hee. It’s such a dainty tea it’s crisp and refreshing and very, very light allowing you to enjoy whatever afternoon treat you’re having.

But if I wanted an afternoon tea in place of an afternoon treat I’d have to say Choc Chip Chai with warm milk and a dollop of honey – it has enough black tea bang to pick up you up and is literally like drinking a chocolate chip cookie.

If I wanted a black tea to pick me up and be sweet – without the effort of making chai then T2’s Citrus Sensation is the winner.

Yeah I’m not very helpful I could go on all day ;( …. I’ve never tried Arctic Fire but you made it sound very nice. :)

Bio

A devilish girl who lives up to the post-80s youth stereotype – hedonistic, frivolous and rebellious – except I love traditional afternoon tea rather than a quick caffeine fix at Starbucks.

I make a living off others’ criminal activities. It’s a busy job and I really wish I could retire, so I can become a full-time afternoon tea connoisseur instead. :j

I love any tea that has nice scent, great flavour and lovely packaging. My current top favourite brands are Mariage Freres, Kusmi Tea, Lupicia, T2, and THE O DOR. ;)

Btw, check out my tea-themed board on Pinterest, if you like tea and pretty things!
